three possible out comes right now, close obama win, close romney win or big romney win and if you talk to some republicans, both connected to the campaign and one step away from the center of the campaign they are starting to talk about the possibility and you see in the republicans movement into pennsylvania, minnesota, and perhaps michigan the possibility that they are not just trying to hedge their bets or trying to expand the map out of desperation but a real belief this thing could be bigger, an oregon polls that show the shows the race close, certainly closer than the president won four years ago i think the momentum is with romney and the obama people are not just spinning when they say, look, out of that first debate in denver he doesn't have momentum where he overwhelmed us he brought home the base be does president's in number has not chanced by any means but pretty pistol hid and that means governor romney has upward momentum or has had it, maybe that has stalled we don't really though but the president does not have bad momentum he is not collapsing in any way, i think

whole time, his big laugh line the republican convention was how silly it was for obama to be talking about slowing the rise of the oceans? i think that wins pretty much every prize for irony right now. there has been a pervading climate silence. we were doing our best to break that. yesterday afternoon, there was a demonstration in times square , a timesdot to connect the dots with -- a giant dot to connect the dots there is a vigil to try to get the senate candidates to address the issue with, change. it is incredibly important that we not only, first party is people safety and assisting relief efforts in every possible way, but it is also important that everybody, even those who are not in the path of this storm, reflect about what it means to have the warmest year in u.s. history when we as in the warmest month, july, of any month in a year in u.s. history, in the year when we saw, essentially, summer sea ice in the arctic vanished before our eyes. what it means now that we're seeing storms of this unprecedented magnitude. if there ever was a wake-up call, this is it. >> let me pl

happened in the last couple of years a movement toward the center. i think of it as obama negotiating with himself with an intransigent right which used its power to hold the country hostage, rather than finding common ground. >> so, let's talk about what you did and didn't learn. you've watched the four debates now. do you have any idea of how governor romney would manage to cut income tax rates by 20% without increasing the deficit? or which tax deductions he would eliminate? or specifically, how he's to create the 12 million jobs he's promised? or what barack obama's going to do in his second term? do you have any sense of that? >> well, in the case of the 12 million jobs, as we know, you don't have to do anything and you'll get 12 million jobs. any number of economists and moody's analytics have predicted that simply by keeping present policies in place, 12 million jobs will be created over that period. so it's not much of a boast. as for the tax policy, my guess is that he doesn't know and he is just saying things. he has said he wants to cut taxes -- rates by 20%. an

rights before election day november 6th. obama made the same pitch in the 2008 election. votes cast early accounted for 30% of the total. >> all across the country we're seeing a lot of early voting. it means you don't have to figure out whether you need to take time off work and figure out how to pick up the kids. >> experts say the share of early votes this time could reach 35%. the figure could exceed 60% in swing states such as colorado and florida. obama visited six battleground states during a swing to win over undecided voter. he slept on air force one to save time. the president spoke before an audience of 15,000 people in the state of virginia. he told them that a republican policies had created an outflow of american jobs and caused the economic downturn. >> we can't afford to go backwards to the same policies that got us into this mess. we have got to go forward with the approximately see that are getting us out of the mess and that's why i am running for a second term. that's why i need your help. >> romney is targeting voters in swing states. people believe ohio will be

right person for us. and to me it's president bra rack obama. nobody else can move us forward^. >> i would tell them to take a look at exactly where we are in this country today. what's the environment. economically we are extraordinarily troubled times. we have a president that cannot balance the budget, doesn't send a budget that gets any votes up to the hill. so that's what i would say that women who are undecided need to look at, how do we turn that around? the answer is to those concerns is to take a look at what mitt romney promises to do. >> why did the gender gap finally re-emerge in the president's favor so definitively in the last few days of campaigning. >> candidly, bonnie, i think it, quote, disappeared. because the president failed to mention women in that first debate. he has since made up for that and it shows in the gender gap. >> bonnie, look, fewer women have jobs today than they did under barack obama. more woman are in poverty, on food stamps, more children face larger debt than ever faced in the history of this country. real gap what president obama has promised

wrote that obama is best equipped to tackle climate change in light of the devastation that hurricane sandy brought to new york city and much ofhehe northeast. bloomberg also cited obama's support for abortion rights and same-sex marriage while noting that republican challenger mitt romney has reversed course after previously holding sensible positions. new figures sho companies added 158,000 jobs last month, the fastest pace in eight months. the figures were released by the payroll processor adp and the eve of today's official employment report from the labor department. former penn state president graham spanier has been indicted for his role in the cover-up of child sex abuse by former assistant football coach jerry sandusky. he was initially charged one year ago after it was revealed he and other top penn state officials failed to report sandusky to police, despite evidence that sandusky was abusing young boys. he was convicted in june of molesting 10 boys and sentenced to up to 60 years in prison. on thursday, greenspan year wass child with -- charged with several charges for hav

restaurant, you couldn't go to a white hotel. they've never been denied those rights. >> i believe that gay couples deserve the same legal rights as every other couple in this country. >> now that president obama has come out in favor of gay marriage, bishop jackson and others want their congregations to deny the president their vote. >> just because somebody's skin is black, you're going to support an anti-god, anti-gospel agenda? no wonder you can't get a job. beware, my christian friend, you should not vote for barack obama. >> reverend braxton believes that the reason that many african-americans oppose gay marriage has to do with their history of being denied the right to marry as slaves. >> when you are disallowed a right and you are requesting to get the right, one of the best ways to do that in the face of those who hold power is to show that you are morally respectable. and so heterosexual marriage and lifting up the family, that is the morally respectable way. and anything that deviates from that may in fact bring again upon us that whole cycle of shame and violence, and that i

picture. the reality is the economic indicators right now are mixed. and you have a new obama ad on the air that's trying to feature the ones that are positive in order to increase the likelihood that you think about those as you ask whether or not the country is better off now than it would've been, had obama not been president. we were in a deep recession. and president obama's having the difficulty of having to make the argument that, "things are better than they would have been, had i not done what i have done." but they're still not what they ought to be. and that's a tough case for the incumbent. and governor romney's exploiting it every inch of the way. >> my favorite whopper was when paul ryan said that the reason that they don't want to say how they will change the loopholes is because they'll be attacked. people will say mean things about them. and that democrats and republicans won't be able to work together. "joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." this from the most ruthless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front t
